Chrysocolla teaching stone & more

Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, that helps you communicate the right words when needed. It is a stone of peace, increased wisdom, and discretion. It promotes level headedness, encouraging clarity of thought and a neutral, cool attitude during turbulence. It can be used to decrease nervousness and irritability. It is empowering of the feminine energies and is associated with the solar plexus, heart, and brow chakras. It calms, cleanses, and re-energizes these Chakras.

Chrysocolla teaching stone & moreThe mix of greens and blues acts on the heart and throat chakras, reaching up to the deeper blue of the brow chakra and the related minor chakra at the base of the skull ( the medulla oblongata). This energy point clears blockages in the emotions and belief systems.

EXERCISE: Place a piece of Chrysocolla at the heart, throat, base of skull, or in the center of the forehead to create a rearrangement of energies that results in a clearer view of emotional issues.  Start by focusing on a problem or situation you wish to understand better.  Then relax and let the stone help bring resolutions to your conscious mind.(This exercise is explained in Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies by Sue & Simon Lilly).




Blue Stones for Thyroid/Adrenal Issues

December 4th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

blue stones for thyroid/adrenal issues


The stones in the blue spectrum are very healing for thyroid and adrenal issues. If considering adding gemstones to your self-healing regiment, here are three suggestions:

1. Turquoise helps with exhaustion.

2. Lapis Lazuli regulates the thyroid gland.

3. Blue Sapphire promotes general good health.

Better yet, visit the nearest gem shop, choose what resonates with you.  Remember the smallest stone can have the highest vibrational healing energy.  It doesn’t take a Rock of Gibraltar to do the nurturing work of Mother Nature.

My hope is that these become a touchstone throughout the day.  They can also be placed under your pillow when resting or at bedtime.

What is needed: 4 clear quartz points, 1 citrine crystal, 1  tumbled rose quartz stone and 1 tumbled amethyst stone.

Crystal Layout:

1. Place a rose quartz crystal on heart chakra.

2. Surround rose quartz by four clear quartz points.  Please note how the quartz points need to be placed:

  (A) To remove emotional imbalances place the points outwards.   OR  (B) to stabilize an over-emotional state point them inwards.

Peridot – “Hawaiian Diamond”

November 6th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES

 Peridot Hawaiian Diamond

More from the legends and history of the Hawaiians which I find so intriguing: Peridot is locally known as the ”Hawaiian Diamond” and is notably found in Oahu’s famous Diamond Head landmark. It is created from the mineral Olivine which forms as lava cools.

Peridot is treasured in Hawaii as the tears of goddess Pele.  Pele lives inside the largest active volcanoes and is described as “she who shapes the sacred land.”  She is the goddess of fire, lightening, wind, and volcanoes. According to Hawaiian legend, Pele created Oahu and the other Hawaiian islands by her volcanic activity.

The ancients believed that Peridot had the power to ward off evil spirits, nightmares and enchantments. It was also used as a medical remedy to treat asthma and other ailments. Its power was considered most potent when the stone was set in gold. Peridot was also said to strengthen any medicine drunk from goblets carved from the stone.

Nature's Gift - Wizard Stones of Kapaemaha

the Wizard Stones are said to contain the mana (power) of four wizards who came to Oahu from Tahiti a long time ago, possibly around 400 A.D.

Their intention was to heal, teach and share their knowledge before returning home.Monument consists of four large healing stones that according to an ancient legend possess the healing powers of four wizards who visited Oahu

On a full moon night thousands of islanders met on the hill behind the neighborhood of Kaimuki (about two miles away from Waikiki Beach) to move four large stones, each weighing a ton or more, to the place where the wizards lived, as monument in memory of their visit.  Today, these four stones are still there for people to see.

Heailng with Herkimer Diamond

Herkimer Diamonds naturally form with 18 facets and are double terminated (points at both ends). They are not really diamonds but known as the most powerful variety of Quartz crystal (they are brighter and have a higher vibration) and are found only in the foothills and surrounding areas of Herkimer County, New York.

Being double terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. These extremely clear crystals often have black inclusions which can be used for focusing on while meditating.  Some have water inclusions within them, which aid the healing of emotional problems.heailng with herkimer diamond

September 20th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in GEMSTONES


Calm Heart with Green Stone & Crystals

The Green Heart Exercise is featured in Simon & Susan Lilly’s books ‘Using Crystals for Healing’ and ‘Healing with Crystals and Chakra Energies’.  To practice this calming exercise, you need one green stone (your choice) and two small clear single pointed crystals. Find a quiet place to relax as shown above:

1. Place the green stone on your heart chakra.  In your left palm hold the clear crystal pointed up the arm and inward to the heart chakra.  Hold the other clear crystal in the right hand pointed down away from the body.

2. Visualize a flow of energy coming from your left hand to your heart and from your heart down the right hand out of your body.  Feel the calm energy filling you up from the left crystal and draining the tension down and out through the right crystal.

3. Important – now change the quartz points in each hand around so the flow moves in the other direction.  Repeat this process.

4. After five minutes remove the quartz points from your hands and experience the calm green energy at the heart chakra. This is a good time to check in with the rest of your body. Feel free to place the green stone on any other area of the body where there is pain or the need for extra calming energy.
